... and there's plenty to do, even though it's March (a traditionally quiet month in the Tri-Lakes).
First off, for those of you who can make it, swing by Saranac Lake for the local Olympian parade. It starts at 4 p.m. and runs from the Post Office on Broadyway to the Harrietstown Town Hall.
The Tri-Lakes area was well-represented at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Read more details about the parade here.
This weekend marks the 26th installment of the Colby Classic. The annual fishing derby kicks off at 7 a.m. both days. I know my old kitchen cohorts at Desperados in Lake Placid -- Deed and Louie -- will be gunning for that top spot, as well as plenty of other ice fishing buffs.
At Will Rogers tomorrow night, some folks are hosting a trivia competition to benefit the students of Petrova Middle School.
